This is a soft blue grey, hard blue or black surcharge on 10f rose stamps already overprinted for Chang Chun. This is the complete set of two in each colour.

These stamps have been identified by using Volume II of the Stamp Catalogue of China by Shui-Hon Chan and the four booklet guide The Local Overprinted Stamps of Manchuria 1945-7 by Allen D Kerr (published 1978 and now out of print). Both works are essential for anyone delving seriously into this subject.
